Very passionate about piano and able to convey ideas.. also very good at feeling out what student is seeking to achieve. Definitely recommend Paul if you are wanting to take playing piano as a serious endeavor

My experience with this teacher was horrible. Paul has no patience for a child that might not pay attention as much as necessary. He has forgotten what it is to be a child or how to win over a child and make a lesson fun.
My child had one previous lesson with Paul. It is true that she was not following his directions and his frustration was quite obvious.
On my second visit I was appalled by Paul’s behavior. Again my child wouldn’t sit down on the bench correctly. Verbatim this what occurred next, I quote: “This is not going to work out. Get out of my house NOW, NOW!(Screaming, like I was going to prolong this). I have better things to do than waste my time with your daughter. I don’t want to take your money.

It is true that my daughter can be difficult when approached in an authoritarian manner. However, my daughter is not yet six and Paul brought my daughter to tears. Surely this behavior was at best inappropriate and says more about the person Paul is than about my daughter. A simple “ May I have word with you in private” would be a mature way to part company. Not throwing a 6 year out of your house because you are frustrated. I was horribly offended by his manner and attitude. No way to treat a 6 year old.

This man has no patience with young kids. I would stay away from this teacher unless your child has some experience with piano. Definitely not child friendly.
Normally I do not post reviews unless something extraordinary happens This is one of those: extraordinarily bad.
An apology is in order if this poor excuse for a “teacher” has any understanding of the unnecessary hurt he has caused.

Hello! My name is Laura. I think you would love taking lessons with me- A little bit about my own background in music: my parents are musicians and music teachers as well ave been taking piano lessons since the day I was born practically! In 2011 I started teaching private music lessons myself, teaching multiple after school music classes at local schools, and directing local choral groups and bands. After high school I attended Musician’s Institute for a degree in vocal performance and music theory. I have assisted and worked many musicians and producers. I myself have performed in over 100 musical concerts, as well as recorded and released my own music. In working with me at The Dave Curtis Music Academy, students also have access to many opportunities to play, write, and collaborate with other artists and students who also share a passion for music, as well as opportunities to participate in group/band practices and performances. If you are a singer/songwriter we also have a full ...

It is hard to describe the level of joy and enthusiasm my lesson with Justin brought me. Justin was respectful, patient, and incredibly helpful with my playing. My experience with Justin has inspired me to pursue music with a much more serious attitude. He helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses, and now I feel like I'm truly making progress. No other lesson I've ever taken has inspired and benefited me as much as this one.
Nate
Very good teacher he didn't have any problems answering my questions. Good experience and I learned a lot.
Mark
Justin is a very structured and reliable teacher. He teaches scales, chords, and arpeggios to students of all ages as well as many different styles; jazz, classical, and rock. He can transcribe music from ear having perfect pitch and teaches music theory. I’ve been teaching music for 25 years and I know the difference between bad teachers and good teachers. Justin is a great teacher who goes above and beyond expectations.

Best in home teaching experience my daughter ever has had. Can't believe how well she is getting and in such a short amount of time as we just started taking here to Uma a few months ago. At 13 she is learning faster than I ever could. This is no lazy teacher. Homeschooling my child and Uma comes one a week to teach her how to play the piano. She is a very nice woman, with a gift, I would recommend Uma to anyone who want's to learn how to play the piano, Thank you Uma.
Irina M.
I started taking online piano lessons with Uma a few months ago. This is my first experience to have lessons via Skype, and it works great, it saves a lot of time and makes learning much more convenient. I enjoy learning with Uma :) She has found a personal approach to me, and keeps me motivated and interested throughout the learning. Uma is a great professional teacher, and my progress is obvious! I feel confident and safe with her knowing she will lead me to success)) The prices are fair, and I enjoy the Takelessons in general, as everything is fast, mobile and easy. I would highly recommend you to check it by yourself!

And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things.

"My son Chiraag Nadig has been learning classical piano under Mrs Ruth's guidance for close to 3 years now and we have been extremely pleased with her coaching for my son. She is very kind and adapts very well to the needs of the student. She is extremely good at piano and has taught many intricate pieces to Chiraag. She helped him clear Grade 7 of Trinity with distinction. We would surely recommend her as a teacher who is very skilled, adaptable and easy to work with."
